No sensonsrs in device template



I have device with set of sensors: ping, snmp custom, snmp custom advanced (multichannel). I have created template for this device. But this template contain only "ping" sensor. Here is file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <devicetemplate id="custom" name="Test_ups_1" priority="1">
    <check id="ping" meta="ping"/>

According this article there is no any restrictions for snmp custom sensors. So, question is "where is my sensor, man"?

You might do the same thing wrong as I did: Make sure that if you create a device template you only click on the sensors you do NOT want to include in the template.

It says "Exclude Sensors", that's where I went wrong quite a few times on the beginning.
